Hope you are all doing really well? Guess what?! I have Internet again wahooo!! Oh my god, honestly my life has been like hell the past few months. Between moving, work, uni and having no Internet I have felt totally overwhelmed. Now I have Internet it means I get really give my last few months of uni a good go and of course blog more often. Due to living in the countryside Internet is pretty hard to get hold of anyway, but five months has just been a total nightmare and has brought me to tears on many occasions. I hate to be so reliant on the Internet, but my uni course is open learning style, so its so important that my Internet is working for me to be able to listen to lectures and of course study! A little while ago I was sent a lovely package from Benefit, which was a total surprise. I have been using Benefit religiously since I was 16, so they really are a brand that is close to my heart. Benefit are just number 1 when it comes to packaging in my eyes and the little package they sent me was just perfect. After reading up on the little info card provided by Benefit "PUFF OFF" sounded like my perfect eye product. I'm the worst sleeper ever! so when I wake up I really do feel like saying PUFF OFF to my puffy eyes and dark circles. I hope you enjoy today's exclusive review and this product will be available from the 31st January from all Benefit counters. I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section down below and if you would like to get in contact a little quicker, feel free to contact me via my Social Media just to the right hand side of my blog :)
Firstly... please can we just appreciate the packaging of this product! it's 100% another win from Benefit. I mean an an iron tip! I just love the idea of magically ironing away all puffiness and darkness. I suffer with insomnia, so for me the whole dark/puffy eye is a common and very annoying problem of mine. I love that the packaging is super pretty, but then its kind of rustic too with the Smooth O-Matic crest. Now onto the product itself! I have been really enjoying this product and love that it has a slight tint, which seems to instantly diffuse darkness. PUFF OFF definitely packs a punch with its impressive peptide formulae and I have found it works amazingly as a primer for my concealer too! seriously my concealer doesen't not budge when using this product. It seems to really prep my under-eye area perfectly for the day ahead and its also small enough to carry around for the odd refresh throughout the day too! The ironing tip helps to stimulate the under eye area and, which is one of the best ways to brighten your under eye and I have found that puffiness almost seems to vanish after a few swipes of this product. The iron tip is extremely cooling and has to be the "coolest" applicator I have ever tried! The only two things I noticed with this product are the fact it's not super moisturising and it is quite a small product at 10ml. I actually think this product will work amazingly in the summer, as its extremely light weight and sinks into the skin within seconds of applying it. Sometimes I find normal eye-creams can be a bit thick in the spring/summer, but this is light and totally refreshing! Plus its tinted formula will be good to diffuse the appearance of any eye concerns without leaving an icky residue.... and nobody wants icky residue before makeup haha!
This might not be a product you think is necessary, but it will definitely fit nicely into most peoples routine. It's quite a multi-tasker and can be your eye cream, primer or simply a rescue product (If your not a morning person this is for you). I have enjoyed using it and not just because it's a pretty snazzy looking product, but I do find the tinted formula to be very useful in diffusing darkness and puffiness. It does retail at £22.50 which is quite pricey, but you never know it could be just what your tired peepers need.
It launches tomorrow in the UK beauties... so don't forget to check it out! I would love to hear your thoughts on this product after my review.. is it for you?
Lots of Love
